Prayer Requests 5-30-19

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 116

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
    he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
    I will call on him as long as I live.

The cords of death entangled me,
    the anguish of the grave came over me;
    I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
    Lord, save me!”

The Lord is gracious and righteous;
    our God is full of compassion.
The Lord protects the unwary;
    when I was brought low, he saved me.

Return to your rest, my soul,
    for the Lord has been good to you.

For you, Lord, have delivered me from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the Lord
    in the land of the living.

10 I trusted in the Lord when I said,
    “I am greatly afflicted”;
11 in my alarm I said,
    “Everyone is a liar.”

12 What shall I return to the Lord
    for all his goodness to me?

13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and call on the name of the Lord.
14 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people.

15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
    is the death of his faithful servants.
16 Truly I am your servant, Lord;
    I serve you just as my mother did;
    you have freed me from my chains.

17 I will sacrifice a thank offering to you
    and call on the name of the Lord.
18 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courts of the house of the Lord
    in your midst, Jerusalem.

   Praise the Lord.

  1. The San people are believed to be the first inhabitants of Southern Africa. Commonly known as the ‘Bushmen’, the San people collectively number around 100,000 and are spread out in small groups across Botswana, Namibia, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. They have a remarkably complex language, characterised by clicking sounds.

    The San Bushmen have a rich folklore, are skilled in drawing, and are typically known for their beautiful cave paintings (rock art) that number over 20,000 across 500 sites. Traditionally, the San are hunter-gatherers; most of them today live in abject poverty and are poorly educated. The San believe in a “god” whom they venerate through their ancestors. Although some claim to be Christian, they cannot explain their beliefs.

    Please pray…
    The San are one of their least-reached people groups in need of the Gospel. Pray for local churches that have been mobilised to regularly pray for and go on outreaches to the San.
    For spiritual breakthroughs, so the San will come to know and worship the one true God – and for many communities of Jesus followers to be planted among them.
    Ask the Lord to raise up full-time workers who will commit to serving among the San in both Zimbabwe and Angola.

  2. The 30 day focus today is for the Turkmen. A nomadic Turkic people, the Turkmen live in Turkmenistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Azerbaijan, and small groups in Turkey. The government of Turkmenistan is extremely authoritarian and isolationist, making it difficult to share the Gospel. Pray that a door might be opened for speaking the Gospel. Pray that the Turkmen in both their state and in other countries might have their hearts opened to the Gospel, and that the few oppressed believers in Turkmenistan might have courage to be salt and light.

  3. Email from East Coast sister this morning (subject line: Home):

    B and I made it home safely last night, though the last day of driving was pretty long and somewhat difficult. We drove through a few different thunderstorms, the last one in northern Maryland being the heaviest and most treacherous.

    All of the kids [they have four] are thrilled to be together again and of course C [my BIL] was delighted to have B and I back home.

    Thank you so much, everyone, for your prayers for them.

    I’ll update you on our siblings&parents conference of the other evening when I have some time later.

  4. The clutch went out on on the way home this morning. Miguel had to pull me in the last 4 miles. Please pray for wisdom and guidance as to what to do. If it is just a clutch, then ok, but the car has 310,000 miles on it. I am hoping to squeeze 350,000 miles out of it. The motor still runs great.

  5. Prayers please, for husband as he tries to help these grown children with their finances. He taught them well but once they hit the road, peer pressure was too much. One just showed up nine hundred overdrawn, two others are five hundred overdrawn. Their problem but he feels it.

    Praying for those extra miles, rkessler.
